"No Guts. No Glory.", the sophomore album from AIRBOURNE, sold around 6,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 89 on the Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released in the U.S. on April 20 via Roadrunner Records. The special-edition digipack version of the album includes five bonus tracks and a bottle opener.

AIRBOURNE traveled to the Windy City to record "No Guts. No Glory." with producer Johnny K, live and straight to analog tape. Like debut album "Runnin' Wild", "No Guts. No Glory." continues that good time vibe, but ultimately, according to drummer Ryan O'Keeffe, the record is about "standing up and going for it, and being a man. There's a tougher element to the album, so to speak." Instead of sleeping every night in a comfortable hotel room bed on the label's dime, the band actually slept in the studio, taking inspiration from Bruce Springsteen and his E STREET BAND, who were known to live in the studio until an album was completed.
